Full bodied but still crisp, this wine has a bright gold color, a nose with both citrus and grapefruit notes, and hints of honey and pear. Both bright and yet rich, fresh and yet acidic, the aromatics give a faint hint of the sea, which lies not too far from where the grapes are grown. The flavor is downright elegant, while remaining easy to drink, and it is perfect for raw seafood like sushi or shellfish, and yet balanced enough to serve with poultry and lighter meats.
80% Sauvignon Blanc, and 10% each of Roussanne and Marsanne, added for floral and herbal notes, these grapes are grown biodynamically and farmed organically across 25 hectares. While technically not part of the Pic Saint-Loup A.O.C., these grapes are still from the same valley, sitting among oak trees and fields of heather on sandy, calcareous soil with deposits of lime and chalk left behind from the pre-historic alluvial plain they sit atop. These grapes are hand-picked and harvest destalked, and then the wine is made from free-run juice and slow pressed must.
